Some of my favorite destinations that I’ve been to recently have been Spain and Morroco, and when I’m travelling, I always think of two things: hydration and portability. The time spent in the air tends to dehydrate my skin (and I have dry skin to begin with!), so I always bring a heavy-duty, multipurpose, moisturizing balm. At the moment I’m loving the Cosmedix Rescue + Intense Hydrating Balm & Mask. It works as a mask for the skin and for chapped areas like the lips.
My make up kit is always minimal. It only takes me a few minutes to put it together. I’ll usually take an eyebrow gel from Anastasia Beverly Hills, mascara from Perricone MD, foundation from Kevyn Aucoin, blush/bronzer/highlighter palette from Sleek, and one shade of liquid lip crème from Marc Jacobs.
On a scale of 1 to 10 (and in terms of high maintenance), I’d say my travelling beauty kit is a 4.
